Want to feel like a kid again? City Museum will do just that!

If you're in St. Louis, make sure to add the City Museum to your to-do list.  This indoor-outdoor space features incredible slides, hidden stairways, and the craziest most random playgrounds.

Here's what their website has to say – “Expect the unexpected. City Museum is a hundred-year-old warehouse in downtown St. Louis in which artists have repurposed the pieces of old cities to build miles of tunnels, slides, climbers, bridges, and castles.  There are secret passages and grand galleries. Playgrounds and ball pits. A circus and a train. A rooftop school bus and a Ferris wheel.”

Visit their website for more information.

Just a quick note - much of the outside play space is metal, so be careful if you're attending in the summer months.
